This alone takes you back to your home directory.
This takes you to where you desktop folder is. The ~ means home directory if you want to use one command instead of
To auto complete file names you use tab.(note: it can not guess the file name if other start with similar beginnings.)
If you want to leave a note in your commands you use #. Example.

The dash signifies a option. The a option means all and it shows all the the files but not files within files.
Do you want to know how to move files here you go:

If you were wondering mv does mean move how mv works is you type mv the directory to get to the file and the the place you want it to go.
To look up commands:
man means manual. Then you type what command you want it to look up if there is a entry for it.

rm will remove files but if you want to use the -r option. (side note: rm means remove.)
To copy file use:
cp ~/document ~/Documents# cp means copy
This will move file document to directory Documents.
